Cast all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.  1 Peter 5:7

I have not been very faithful to post on my blog.  Life, illnesses, etc. have kept me from getting back into a routine.  I am feeling lead to begin posting again and hope to do so at least once a week.  Since the second cookbook has come out I have continued to develop and collect recipes.  I constantly look for ways to stretch the food budget and use leftovers.  I am looking forward to getting back into the blog world.  I hope you will enjoy and be able to use some of these posts.  (more…)

AdeleCookbookPhotoConcept_BackgroundDesign2John 6:27  Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.

There are 300 recipes in this cookbook.  All of these recipes have been tested by me personally.  This is an expansion of the first cookbook:  Family Favorites. Family Favorites II, Second Helpings is now available.  The recipe collection has a southern influence recipes that require no fancy equipment or exotic ingredients.  One person who recently purchased the book said she enjoyed it because she usually had most of the ingredients already in his fridge or pantry. The cost is $15.00 plus shipping. Part of the proceeds (about 1/2) will be donated to a free meal program that is hosted by my church:  Manna Meals: this is a meal that is offered every week on Saturday to anyone who enters our doors.  Get your copy now.  They would make a great Mother’s Day present.  Contact me via this site or visit our Facebook Page:   Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

12195865_10206677301225175_8456024344166014272_nProverbs 13: 20  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

One of my son-in-love’s favorites and so easy.  Next time you have chicken for dinner poach an additional chicken breast.  Season the water with season salt and pepper.

1 cooked chicken breast (can use rotisserie chicken) – chopped or shredded into small pieces

1 16 oz. can of chicken or vegetable broth

2 16 oz. cans of cannellini beans (can use navy or great northern beans)

16 oz. can of crushed or diced tomatoes – optional

Add these ingredients into a slow cooker.  Do not drain the beans.

Add seasonings to your taste.  I suggest:

1 T. chili powder

1 t. cumin

1 t. celery flakes

2 T. dried chopped onions

1 t. parsley flakes

1/2 t. cayenne

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. salt – optional if on a low sodium diet

Heat together and taste broth for flavor.  Add more of any of the above to taste.

Add additional chicken or vegetable broth if you want a thinner soup.

This soup freezes well.  You can add cilantro and/or sour cream when you serve the soup.

Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker: for he is our Go and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.  Psalm 95: 6-7

If you love French Onion Soup, but don’t have the time to stand and stir until the onions are brown, etc.  this is the soup recipe for you.This uses a crockpot or slow cooker.

3 lbs. yellow onions – sliced

3 lbs. red onions – sliced

1/2 – 1 stick of butter (do not substitute margarine)

1 teas. thyme or several sprigs fresh thyme

2-3 bag leaves

Place the butter in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Add the onions, thyme and bag leaves.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

After the onions are cooked add 3-4 15oz. cans of good quality beef broth or about 6-7 cups.  The amount you add depends on the broth to onion ratio that you like.  Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed. Recover and allow to heat through.

Serve in a soup bowl with a piece of crusty bread and a piece of Provolone cheese on top.  Melt the cheese under a broiler or in the microwave.

This soup freezes very well.  This is one of the best I have ever had.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalm 139:  13-14

Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have had some serious health issues for a year.  I am back and hope to share more recipes, hints/tips, etc. on this blog.  I was able to get the second cookbook finished while I was not feeling so well.  It has a lot of the recipes from the first cookbook with about 120 new recipes added.  The book contains 300 recipes.  I have personally prepared each of these recipes.  We have a Facebook page at:  Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

The books are $15.00 and with shipping they are $18.00.  If you order more than one I can calculate the shipping.  The profits from the book are donated to a local free meal program. I also have set up Paypal, so you can pay online, mail a check or money order.  If you mail payment the book will not be shipped until I receive payment.

Some of favorite recipes in the book are:  Baked French Toast, Cream Cheese Danish, Herbal Cheesecake,  Cottage Cheese Salad,  Carrot Dressing Casserole, Bean Enchilada Bake, Amish Friendship Bread, Candy Bar Cheesecake, Quick Peanut Butter Fudge and White BBQ Sauce.

These would make unique Christmas Presents.  I will sign the books as a free bonus.

Acts 20:32  I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I have been on a journey to complete my second Cookbook.  I wrote the first one when our children left home and then kept calling back asking how to make _______.  I decided that the best way to get everything together was to print a Cookbook.   To my delight and surprise people wanted to buy some of the books.  After I sold out people were still asking for cookbooks. 

I am constantly searching for new recipes and asking people to share their favorites with me.  I starting compiling recipes for another cookbook almost three years ago.  It is finally done, has been printed and has arrived.  This new book has a lot of the favorites from the first book, but it also has almost 125 NEW recipes.  This book has 300 recipes that have all been personally prepared by ME. 

My wonderful daughter has developed an ecommerce site and has set up a PayPal Account if you would like to purchase one.  There is a tab at the top of this page called:  Adele’s Cookbook.  The cost is $15.00 plus $3.25 for shipping/handling.  If you want multiple copies you can message or email me for the shipping costs.  They are also available for wholesale rates.

After I recover the costs for the printing at least 1/2 (if not all) of the profits will be donated to charity.  I hope some of these recipes that have become our Family Favorites might become some of your family’s favorites also.  Believe me, most of them you will want to have Second Helpings.
